Video store clerk Darla Vogel is fed up, until one of her customers, a precocious home-schooled kid, offers her some of his meat-tinged candies. Darla takes a plunge down the rabbit hole into a surreal world of throbbing, veinous buildings, compulsory public nudity, weird creatures and more. If William S Burroughs, Lewis Carroll, H.P.

I'm biased. I like Bob Fingerman. Many years ago, I had him for a store signing, and he's really a great guy. His art is really bizarre, but I really like it.

Bob Fingerman is insanely talented. Need to start picking up his new pamphlet too but may wait till it's collected. Here is a guy that finds sex in the apocalypse.

Recent releases are From the Ashes, a satirical "speculative memoir" set in post-apocalyptic New York (IDW, March 2010) of which The Onion wrote, “As a blitz of astringent satire, an unabashed love letter to his wife, and a love-hate manifesto aimed at the whole human race, From The Ashes is a gem; as an addition to the often-staid canon of post-apocalyptic pop culture, it’s a revelation… A
